Paddington Bear loves to lend a paw. From taking a saw to Mr. Curry's kitchen table to extinguishing a surprise flambé, each time Paddington helps out, things tend to get messier before they improve. But with his special tool kit, playful wits, and just a little bit of marmalade, Paddington can take any day and make it extraordinary! First published in 1960, Paddington Helps Out is the third novel by Michael Bond chronicling the adventures of this classic character. Paddington has warmed the hearts of generations of readers with his earnest good intentions and humorous misadventures. This brand-new paper-over-board edition of the classic novel contains the original text by Michael Bond and illustrations by Peggy Fortnum.
